Caparros: Anything is possible

24 March 2012 13:38

Mallorca coach Joaquin Caparros is staying positive ahead of side's La Liga clash with Barcelona on Saturday.

Mallorca - 12th in La Liga - are massive underdogs against the resurgent European champions, who are looking to narrow Real Madrid's six-point advantage at the top of the table.

But Caparros feels his side can get a result if they manage to keep the Catalan juggernaut at bay.

"It's hard to win at Barcelona, but in football anything is possible," he said.

"We have to play at a level high in the offensive and defensive aspects of the game and take our chances when we have them.

"We have to defend very well when we do not have the ball and know what to do collectively. We do not forget that Barcelona has the beating of their smaller rivals, but hopefully this will not happen tomorrow."

The former Athletic Bilbao coach went on to praise Lionel Messi, and hopes the Ballon d'Or holder has a bad game.

"He is the best football player in every game, and he always surprises us with something new. He amazed us with his genius against Sevilla, then scores a hat-trick in his next match," Caparros said.

"Hopefully we will not remember his genius after the game in Mallorca, and see that he is human and has had an off day."
